Skeptic Summary #86

By The Staff
Posted on: 4/10/2006

They're toads, revisiting foxholes, the antichrist, cyclopia, dumb questions, strange science and more!

Week ending April 8, 2006 (Vol 3, #13)

Welcome to the Skeptic Summary, a quick week-in-review guide to the Skeptic Friends Network and the rest of the skeptical world.

Forum Highlights:
F-ing Frogs - Toads gone wild, a real-life toad porn problem.

Katie Couric…Atheist/Foxhole Crapola, again - At the very least, a source for some good counter-quotes.

Mark it Down: June 6, 2006 - As has been said before, it’s the end of the world as we know it, again.

Editor’s Choice: Icon of Atheism? “Cy” the Cyclops kitty. - It’s to be expected that when a creationist promises to show us things that have never been seen before, he will show us something that we’ve all seen before.

From the Archives This may be a dumb question, but… - There are no dumb questions, hippy, only dumb answers!
Kil’s Evil Pick:
Strange Science - The Rocky Road to Modern Paleontology and Biology. This is a wonderful site. For lots of fun, look over the Goof Gallery!
Chat Highlights:
Sunday: Counter-terrorist excercises; Storm’s “Tails from the Clinic”; Barbarella and the first Brazilian astronaut; flirting with religion; singing at meetings; double-blind testing of bloodsucking: will ferrous gluconate suffice as placebo? Drink the blood of a non-smoker, taste the difference… Also: electronic noses and Boron10 makes a surprise appearance.

Wednesday: Chat started slow. Ricky went to make an offering to the FSM. Then we set off in search of a topic. Val has a mental state close to tapioca. Kil got hungry. PJs, poll code that sucks, taxes, where the heck is Cune anyway, Kil goes someplace completely wrong and twisted, April Fools, Ricky tries to scam Calc answers, battling South Park and Monty Python quotes. Corn fused? So were we. Join us next week.

Come chat with us.

Book of the Week:
Beyond Belief: the Secret Gospel of Thomas, by Elaine Pagels.

“At the center of Beyond Belief is what Pagels identifies as a textual battle between the Gospel of Thomas (rediscovered in Egypt in 1945) and the Gospel of John. While these gospels have many superficial similarities, Pagels demonstrates that John, unlike Thomas, declares that Jesus is equivalent to “God the Father” as identified in the Old Testament. Thomas, in contrast, shares with other supposed secret teachings a belief that Jesus is not God but, rather, is a teacher who seeks to uncover the divine light in all human beings.”
